NeoCide® Preservative is effective preservation of chemicals (abbreviated to PC) and a new biocide (unison to NeoCide) for controlling microorganisms in biological media for in vitro diagnostic (IVD) products. Suitable media include reagents, control solutions, calibration solutions, buffers, and mobile phases. With broad-spectrum activity, excellent compatibility and stability, and low toxicity and biodegradable at use levels, NeoCide preservative is the ideal choice for replacing Thimerosal, Sodium Azide, and Gentamicin.
Due to outstanding ivd reagent manufacturing, NeoCide preservative eradicates bacteria, fungi, and yeasts in reagents for prolonged periods, thereby increasing a product's shelf life and open vial stability. The water solubility permits easy incorporation into in vitro diagnostic reagents. Further, it does not affect the functionality of most enzyme-or antibody-linked reactions, and will not interfere with assay indicators. The composition of the product is exactly the same as that of Sigma-Aldrich.
